The ask a Phantom a question thread

Phantom Forum Talk about Phantom

lilchiq Level 200 Scania Phantom 4
Just like in any other section, let us help each other out and ask/answer questions. I will try my best to also personally answer people's questions. Hopefully we can prevent questions being asked over and over again in new threads with this!

[url=]Most general information can be found in the guide[/url]


Q.Are Phantoms Hero Class or Legend Class?
A.Phantoms are a HERO Class. Legends are Demon Slayer, Cannoneers and Mercedes. Mercedes is both a hero and a legend. Legends are the classes released in the LEGEND PATCH. Heroes are the classes that fought the black mage 100 years ago. Meaning that Phantom is one of them.

Q.When was Phantom released to GMS?
A.The Phantom class was released on the 9th of July.

Q. Do Phantoms have Link skill?
A.Yes they do!Phantom Instinct: With great insight, see the flaws of monsters and increase your critical chance by 10%.

Q. What weapon does a Phantom use?
A.Phantoms use Canes as a primary weapon and Cards as a secondary (similar to Mercedes)Answered by Novarain

Q. Are canes one hand weapons, or two hand weapons?

Q.Can you potential the cards like the Mercedes Arrows?
A.Yes, it can have potential.

Q.How do cards work?
A.Cards works as a Secondary weapon. You equip it like the Mercedes Arrows, but they function very differently. They are like a another cover of a weapon, for example, when you steal the skill Haste, when you use the skill the card lets the cane turn into a glowing claw that Night Lords use for the time that takes it to buff.

Q.Do I need to wear the Card to be able to use the skills?
A.Yes you do need to wear the card, just like how Mercedes class can't attack without their arrows.

Q. If I stole Lucky Seven, Hurricane or Rapid fire would I still need the Stars, Arrows or Bullets?
A.No, you won't need them because the Cards you wear with the Canes will do the job of the stars and etc.

Q.If I stole hurricane lvl 29 would mine be 29?
A.If your level of Impeccable Memory is 29 or higher, yes it will be. If not, the stolen skill level will be on the level which your Impeccable Memory is at.

Q. If you had Holy Symbol on, and you switched it out to use a different skill, like Combo Attack, will the Holy Symbol stay on?
A.No, the buff effects will disappear, BUT if you like to use Hyper Body and Combo Attack for example, in a party, it is possible to do it, but you ave to sacrifice a higher advancement equipped slot to be able to buff 2 of the lower skills.

Q.Can Phantoms share Cash Shop inventories?
No, they do not share Cash Shop inventories with any other jobs. Phantoms are a Hero class like the Aran and Evan class. Just because they steal skills from Explorers and make them seem like an Explorer class doesn't mean they can share Cash Shop inventories.

Q.So how does the skill stealing thing exactly work?
A. You can't steal from Legends, Heroes, Resistance or side Explorers (e.g Dual bladders and Cannon Shooters).
You can only steal skills from Explorers, Magicians, Archers, Warriors, Thieves and Pirates.
However there's this skill called Steal Skill in the beginner job section of a Phanom. What you do is, you use this skill and a circle frame will appear. You can move it with your mouse and click on the character in your map from which you want to steal a skill.

E.g. you want HS. Go find a priest/bishop, use the skill and click on him/her. The skill tab should appear and on the right bottom corner of each skill there should be a button that says Steal Skill. Press on that and tada! You have stolen a skill.

Q.When Phantom steal skills like HS or Sharp Eyes, can the stolen skills affect the whole party or is only a self-buff thing?
A.The stolen buffs work like how they should, they effect all the party members and yourself.

Q.Can you only steal skills from people on the same job as you, or same level?
A.You can steal skills from any Explorer Job, and you don't have to be the same level as the person you are stealing from.

Q.How many skills can you have stolen at once?
A.You have 4 slots for first and second job, 3 for third job, and 2 for fourth job. However, if you use a skill then switch active skills, the effect of the first skill will disappear.

Q.Can I steal skills from Resistence/Cygnus/Side Adventurers?
A.No, you cannot steal from them.

Q.Is it possible to steal skills from UA/UE classes? i.e. shark wave/flame gear etc.?
A.No, you can't steal them because they are in the beginner skill tab, and also they are skills from Cygnus knights.

Q.From the classes you can steal from, can you PICK a move out of their whole set?
A.Yes you can choose the skills you can steal but, you cannot steal passive skills or summons.

Q.Is it possible to macro three talent of the phantom thief , ie 1st 2nd 3rd job on one macro?
A.As long as it doesn't have a cool down it can be macro'd. Answered by @razormana

Try to answer as well as you can. Don't just guess, give sources. If you are making assumptions about something, make clear that you aren't sure. Let's not give people the wrong information!

idk bout lvls but heres how stealing works:
every tier has a different # of skills in ur stolen skill inv, but for every tier u can have only 1 stolen skill used. 1st tier:4 2nd tier:4 3rd tier:3 4th tier:2
so lets just say my 2nd tier inv is: Heal, HB, Rage, Shuriken Burst. i can only choose one of those skills that i can put on a macro and use any time.
and this is just extra: a 1st job stolen skill can go in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th job slot, 2nd job can go into 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, 3rd can go into 3rd, and 4th, and 4th can only go in 4th.

@wubzey it would throw a card per hit. its like an AFA but with criticals. its rlly easy to get a phantom 100% crit, and the card skill doesnt need a mastery book lol.[/quote]

It does need Mastery Book, i can prove that with SS of book or skill with unused MB. The onyl Phantom skill dat does not require book is Twilight

my friends always use macros with their stolen skills, as long as it doenst have a cooldown it can be macro'd.
tbh RF is only good for low 4th job phantoms, the reason you see high lvl phantoms bossing with SE and UD is because it has a higher damage output.[/quote]

Rapid Fire outdamages Ultimate Drive on 1 mob.

@kkubik96 i saw a youtube video, the guy did 4th job adv and he put his mouse over the skill and it said max lvl 20. there is no 30 for this book (he did 4th job adv in vid, and the max lvl on shakar's blog said 20.)
[url=]if u pause at 3:58 where his mouse goes over the card skill the max lvl is 20[/url]

@StaffNStuff Um, might have to look around and see what others say but, I'm guessing you want a bossing set? In my opinion, I'll steal

1st job Haste/Magic guard (with magic guard i heard mp gets drained so fast but you want the lowest hp draining from boss attacks and such)
2nd job Threaten =>Power Gaurd
3rd job Combo Attack
4th job Sharp eyes (you want that crit hits to collect the cards and also high dmg) or SI (the speed increase will be great)

I didn't put rapid fire in there because you have Ultimate drive and Tempest of card. If you see in the videos on youtube, mainly they use Ultimate drive, they use it because they mob as well, and we all know bosses like to summon those minions haha. and tempest of cards same thing deals damage in a big AoE <if you haven't seen HT solos and Zak solos check em out it's really useful just by watching the youtube videos.

I think for Damage wise it really depends on your funding :l but then again I'm a noob and haven't played this but I try to help as much as i can

@yoyobrains0 Sorry forgot to include Resistance! Don't worry BaM, WH, and Mechs, you are safe from being copied

@NinjaClns best in my opion? ummm

1st job Haste
2nd job HB/Rage
3rd Holy symbol (training wise) or Combo Attack for training/bossing?
4th I would go for SE for buffs or Rapid fire or Hurricane (theres only room for 2 skills to store on the skill management UI so either of the attacking is alright i think)

You don't have to choose rapid fire, it really depends on what kind of play style you have. I prefer to mob as well as attacking, so I prefer to use Ultimate drive when i boss. But for single targets Rapid fire and Hurricane would be good [/quote]
Ummm that would not be the best if u stay up to date with the new skills in the pirate/theif revamp
The Best Build would be:
1st Job:Haste/Magic Guard(MG is not really necessary cause of phantoms high avoid)
2nd JobNew Pirate Skill, Gives 30 weapon att when maxed out) Mental Clarity
3rd Job:Holy Symbol/Combo Attack (Holy Symbol for solo training, Combo attack for party training)
4th Job:Rapid Fire/Sharp Eyes or Get Decent Sharp Eyes and Use Pirate Style (Rapid Fire for 1v1 Bossing, SE and Pirate Style for mobbing)
